Re: IMAC or macbook pro - advise from Mac users please!
I'm not sure if you can order from the Apple store online, but to the left down near the bottom they have great deals on refurbished Macs. They carry the same warranty as the new for the same year and model. My son has had two such refurbs and has had no issues what so ever.
It's tough being a Realist, in a world full of Dreamers.
